No Holds Barred

Win Win Box Art

Win Win Paul Giamatti stars in an unconventionally uplifting coming-of-age sports comedy about down and out guys who wrestle their way to happiness. Lovable yet long-suffering lawyer Mike Flaherty moonlights as a volunteer coach for a pathetic high school wrestling team. When some questionable business dealings place him in the path of Kyle, a teenage runaway who also happens to be a champion wrestler, Mike's luck turns around in spectacular fashion. But his win-win situation soon becomes more complicated than he ever imagined when the boy's family affairs threaten to derail everything.

Talk to the Hand

The Beaver Box Art

The Beaver Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with the scandal-plagued Mel Gibson in a bizarre black comedy about a troubled man, plagued by his own demons, who finds hope in an unlikely savior. Walter Black, a once-successful toy executive and family man, has hit rock bottom. Suffering from debilitating depression, and facing his darkest hour, he can't seem to get himself back on track... until a buck-toothed beaver hand puppet takes over Walter's life in an attempt to turn things around. Also starring Anton Yelchin and Jennifer Lawrence, it's an unusual story of suburban meltdown and self-discovery.

Product Placement

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Box Art

POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Yes, that's the full official title of this movie. Documentarian Morgan Spurlock is biting the hand that feeds him, shining a light on Hollywood's dirtiest little secret: the world of product placement, marketing and advertising. With the same irreverent comedic style that put McDonald's execs on the defense in 'Super Size Me,' Spurlock's latest film -- fully financed by the very product placement the movie explores on screen -- unmasks the marketing process, bringing us directly into the pitch meetings and marketing presentations which inform our everyday entertainment decisions.

Blu-ray Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary
  • At the Sundance Film Festival
